Here X-Play preview another big game, this time Lair for the PS3.
i loved the rogue squadron games, and i have really high expectations for this game.
This game is about PS3 cell and memory ram power ! MGS4 is about PS3 cell and GPU power !
This game never impressed me, but then again I'm not into dragon games. It reminds me of Panzer dragoon.
It should be better than that. I have my eyes set on this game right now, mainly for its graphical and innovative appeal, but I'll wait to see what it gets in reviews. Looks good though, I like the musical score too.
Was expecting a little more after all the hype around the Cell. I mean, all the ground troops look the same and they seem to move in groups not as individuals. Each group also seems to move in unison - just watch them all step at the same time when backing away from the dragon. However, the game looks like a lot of fun and the graphics overall do look pretty solid. I don't see anything that the 360 couldn't pull off...
The build shown is a preview build and does not have the A.I. code progression put into it for the purpose of making a good demo. Who wants to see a preview where the player is always dying. End game will have acutally have A.I. in it.
Wait till the game itself is released. The Cell is clearly capable of a lot, just look at it's many uses outside of gaming. If utilised well, some great games can be made.
impressive graphics and gameplay.. a good story can make this game unforgetable..
I dig it. Graphically amazing
The older PC created CGI footage of lair looked much better than this actual lair footage. Some of it's looking pretty good, and some of it's looking kind of ps2ish. There's definately nothing to brag with this so called ps3 power. 30K enemies on screen at one time, lol, I don't think so, in fact even from a slight distance the enemies became just a dark spot on the field, and the field itself was poor, I haven't seen the grass and ground look so ps2ish in a long time. In fact, god of war on the ps2 looks better than this game. Lair had potential but it's gone now, and a maybe 10 hour game flying a plain looking dragon isn't fun to me. It looks bad and washed out but maybe that's in 1080p? I don't know, maybe it wouldn't be so washed out in 480p. What's sad is that it's taking sony backed dev.s almost 3 yrs. to produce a decent looking/playing game on the ps3, at this rate, the next semi goodlooking sony backed game will be 2009/2010. This is Living? Really?
spoken like a true fanboy.
if u think this game looks like god of war 2 lol - the detail and shadows etc are amazing...i dont remember seeing that in god of war 2... remember c0ck breathe this game is 32x32km big @ss levels and u can fly and land without load times or anything...its all real time - and there are 25k soldiers and enemies on the screen..and u talk about soldiers in the distance look blurry? A) the fact u can even see soldiers moving that far is a plus as we all know 360 cant do that - look at oblivian - the ps3 vision u can see further in the distance where the 360 falls short..B)360 uses so much blur effect its just [email protected]
now now kids...
I didn't say that you couldn't see soldiers from far far away such as 32km, I said from a short short distance they became small dots in the video, I hope that's not finished product. Persons, and thats the wrong term for you but persons who use the language you do shouldn't be allowed on this site.
xgamer...watching this little video does not express the scale and graphics of this game. Go watch the dev interviews on Gametrailers...they blew everyone away, including "bias" xbox fans. "most technically impressive game so far" etc etc
the games looks ok but not impressive enought. I just hope that the finish product the enemies AI on the ground dont just stand there getting nail by the dragon not doing a damn thing to defend themselves. I hope they react and attack because from the look of the video footage this games looks 2 easy.
Look guys and girls. I've been an XBOX360 guy from jump. I'll admit that I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of the PS3 to see whether or not it could duplicate the past glory of Sony by putting out a phenomenal product to blow away the XBOX360. I was hoping that they would fall flat on their face, and so far, that is exactly what is happening. But then I heard, "Wait until the big games come out!" And I heard, "The first MONSTER game to launch will be Lair! THEN, you'll see power!" Okay... I watched the X-Play Summer Preview Special. You're kidding, right? Lair looks like something on the Nintendo 64. And I'm not just saying that to be mean. The battles on the ground with the troops were about as cheesy as you can get. I thought that the dragon was knocking over toy army men. And the color variaions on the dragon while he was flying was pretty cheesy as well. XGamer is the only one on this page to accurately speak on what he saw. Wow. What PS3 Fanboy will be the first to admit that after seeing that footage, they are a little scared. Scared of what? Scared that the Sony Team has bamboozled you all into thinking that great products were on the way, when the final products that hit the market will fall short. Ala Killzone. XBOX360 is ready for you to join the party. Do it now! Halo 3 is on the way!
I wish we could post gifs! SUmmer preview was a crap show of Lair...they didn't show it in HD, or the best bits. Grr...i have some gifs of this that look incredible. Now dude...you are speaking the same after the IGN preview of Lair...they weren't sure. 360 fanboys were bashing it. And then gametrailers dev videos came along. Blew everyone away. Best looking game this gen. So unless you've seen that, you sir know nothing.
Thats all I had to read from your post to know that it was just another case of fanboy bull. You xfools do it all the damn time. you've been an xbox360 guy from the jump and you've proven that quite well along with xgamer and then its funny how you try to use him as a valid witness of what he "supposedly saw" in the trailer when hes just as fanboy as you. To sit there and say that you saw n64, or god of war 1 is completely crazy in itself. Why do fools like you even waste your time? its not like microsoft is paying you at all. And then to have the extent to representing your game company or "god" in your avatar tops it enough. And speaking of halo3 I saw that alpha build everyone was bad mouthing about and..........yeah. Keep that towel wrapped tight around that 360.
